Case Study 1-Acceptable Use Policy

An Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) is a very important policy within organizations to define acceptable employee behavior when accessing company resources. Additionally, there are also legal implications within AUPs. Use an existing AUP that you are familiar with, such as from a current or previous workplace, or search on the Internet for an example AUP to complete this case study.

Write a three to five (3-5) page paper in which you:

  1. Describe the purpose of an      Acceptable Use Policy you have selected and explain how the AUP helps      provide confidentiality, integrity, and availability within the      organization.
  2. Critique the AUP you selected and      provide recommendations for improving the AUP.
  3. Explain methods that organizations      can implement to help ensure compliance with the AUP, mitigate their risk      exposure, and minimize liability. Describe how your selected AUP      accomplishes these goals.
  4. Describe methods for increasing the      awareness of the AUP, and other policies, within the organization.
  5. Use at least three (3) quality      resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not      qualify as quality resources.
